Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 30 min. + chilling


3-1/2 cups

My grandfather, who was a hotel chef for many years, created this recipe. He prepared these mushrooms for big family gatherings, and they always were gone quickly.


  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 pounds fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes in puree, undrained
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Sliced French bread


  1. In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil and butter until crisp-tender. Add mushrooms; cook for 2 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper; cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Stir in the vinegar, parsley and garlic. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. To serve, spoon onto slices of French bread.
